Default What a mess

Having a messy week so far. Had 2 bottles of Strong Ale explode on Saturday after moving them out of the basement to do some cleaning, then last night the cap blew of my better bottle filled with Citrus Weizen. I feel like I've been cleaning up beer all week.

Sounds like no fun at all...

I usually start out with a blowoff tube, then switch to bung if it doesn't look threatening.

Good thing you have homebrew on hand to help you temporarily forget about the crappy beer week that you're having!

Didn't think the wiezen beer would need a blow off tube. My bad.

And I used Zyiec Bottles for the strong ale. That's got to be the thinest glass bottle I ever seen. My bad again.

sorry to hear that.

weizen yeasts like to go CRAZY no matter how strong the beer is. always use blow-off tubes with wheat beers

thin bottles FTL...put them in a really cool place where they won't hurt anything if they go kaplooey

All I can say is I won't happen again. I think I'll use evens suggestion to always start with a blow off tube

Age, yes, carb most likely not.
